I always want to make sure my kids know how much I love them, I say it all the time and always make sure to give lots of hugs and kisses. This was something that was never done in my home when I was a child—it was always just assumed. To this day my parents and I rarely say “I love you” to each other, to us it just seems…weird. I never want it to be that way with my kids. I want them to openly know how much I love them and have them feel free to express their own feelings!
The one thing I have noticed, however, is that my husband and I are kind of on the same path that I was on with my parents. We rarely actually tell each other that we love each other (we do but not often); it is kind of just assumed. I think this is a path we need to start detouring off of, and starting making an effort to showcase our love more often!
I think one way to do this is not only by saying it, but also expressing it! I found this intimacy kit on edenfantasys and think it would be a great jump start (hey we are moms but we still have lives right!).
How do you express love through words as well as actions? Do you express love through art, home decor, or other visual elements?
